Dear Collectors

Welcome to another edition of

Australian Stamp Bulletin and

an exciting program of stamp

issues for March and April. This

edition also brings you the full

range of products for the 2012

Australian Legends stamp issue

released in January. The range

includes a splendid prestige

booklet in a large format

and written by a group of

prominent sporting journalists

– each with an insight into

one of the four football codes

represented. The book is a

must for sports enthusiasts and

collectors. It offers a profi le for

each 2012 Legend nominee,

great sporting photographs

and career statistics as well as

exclusive blocks of four of the

gummed stamps produced.

For someone interested in

sport it would make a great

gift or keepsake.

This edition features a

variety of themes, including

Waterbirds and the Queen’s

Diamond Jubilee. Set to be

released in the beginning of

the year, Farming Australia

was moved to March and is

being released to coincide with

the celebration of 2012 as the

Year of the Farmer. The issue

looks at a variety of industries

and promotes the wealth of

Australian produce and the

importance of farming to the

Australian economy.

One of the major celebrations

of 2012 is the Diamond Jubilee

of the accession to the throne

of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth

II and Australia Post has

produced some very special

products for collectors. The

stamp issue presents a young

monarch on the base rate

stamp with the international

stamp featuring the Queen as

we know her today. I’m sure

thematic collectors will be

delighted with the design of

the issue.

To coincide with ANZAC Day

commemorations, we look at

one of the most signifi cant

Australian military symbols.

The Rising Sun Badge is

synonymous with our vision

of ANZAC and the hope and

gallantry that the badge is said

to inspire.

I am also very pleased to

bring you early news on the

centenary celebrations of the

“Kangaroo and Map” stamp

series and the international

stamp show to take place in

Melbourne – Australia 2013.

You will fi nd show details and

information sources, including

a glimpse of a number of

exciting show souvenirs already

available for collectors, on page

18 of this edition.

The event is to be held in the

Great Hall of Melbourne’s

iconic and heritage-listed

Royal Exhibition Building. Set

within the tranquil Carlton

Gardens, both the building and

gardens were completed in

1880 in time for Melbourne’s

fi rst international exhibition

to display the success of the

city as a result of the goldrush

years. Those wishing

to attend this international

philatelic event are encouraged

to begin their plans early to

take advantage of the close

proximity of the venue to other

major city attractions.

Happy Collecting

Sport has a long history in post-settlement Australia, and its

social and cultural impact cannot be overstated. Whether or

not one is a participant, sport shapes the lives, routines and

weekends of many Australians, binding people across cultures

and generations. But no sport achieves these things quite like

football: Australian rules, rugby league, rugby union and soccer.

Regional and cultural elements defi ne each code’s territory and

popularity, but throughout the playing season all four games

command the attention of players and coaches, the passion

of thousands of followers, and hours and pages of media

coverage.

In 2012, the Australia Post Australian Legends Award celebrates

eight doyens of football. In a departure from previous years,

in 2012 our living legends comprise one all-time great and

one current star from each of these widely embraced games:

Ron Barassi AM, Gary Ablett, John Raper MBE, Billy Slater,

1715002 First day cover (gummed) David Campese AM, David Pocock, Joe Marston MBE and Mark

In rugby league, John Raper famously played in eight

consecutive premiership-winning teams, while Billy Slater is

renowned as the cornerstone of Queensland’s six successive

State of Origin victories.

In rugby union, David Campese achieved the ultimate

individual and team success as a Wallaby at the 1991 World

Cup, while another Wallaby, David Pocock, was selected as a

Legend because of his consistently stellar performances in a

still nascent career.

In soccer, Joe Marston was the fi rst Australian to play in an FA

Cup fi nal, while both he and Mark Schwarzer are decorated

Socceroos who have also pursued highly successful careers in

European football – some 45 years apart.

In the wild, ducks are a common and quite beautiful group of

birds. They often travel and feed in fl ocks, their number making

them conspicuous. Australia is home to 28 species of ducks, of

which 10 are endemic.

The Radjah Shelduck is a distinctive bird, with its white head,

neck, underbelly and eye, and its rich chestnut neck band and

back. Also known as the Burdekin Duck, this species inhabits

mainly brackish water and mangrove environments across the

far north coastal region. It is sensitive to human incursions

into its habitat, which has led to a decline in its numbers over

recent decades.

The Pink-eared Duck attracts much interest for its singularity.

Named for the pink area behind each eye, it is a curiouslooking

bird, with fi ne black and white bars across its body,

a dark back and patch over each eye, and a large spatula-like

bill. The plumage of males and females is identical. This duck

prefers shallow swamps in the arid inland. The temporary

nature of its ideal feeding habitat and its specialised mode

1718002

First day cover

(gummed)


of feeding make it a highly nomadic bird that can be found

throughout much of Australia.

The Australian Shelduck has glossy black plumage, a chestnut

breast and lower back, and iridescent green speculum. The

male’s head is completely black, but the female has a white ring

around her eye and beak. While it is also known as the Mountain

Duck, the Australian Shelduck prefers saline or brackish water

in lowland areas and large lakes. It mostly occupies Australia’s

more southerly regions.

The Plumed Whistling-Duck has a mainly

pink bill and legs, a white belly and long,

upswept fl ank plumes. This tropical duck

is highly nomadic, particularly between

coastal and interior plains. It is fairly

common across northern Australia and

east down the coast to the Murray River.

During the wet season it will inhabit

saturated inland plains.

Phillip Law 1912–2010

This stamp issue marks the centenary of the birth of Dr Phillip

Law AC (1912–2010), one of Australia’s most experienced polar

explorers. He was a pivotal fi gure in developing Australia’s

Antarctic science program and in securing a commitment to

the region.

Law’s association with Antarctica began with the

establishment of the Australian National Antarctic Research

Expedition (ANARE) in 1947. A physics academic, Law was

appointed to plan and organise ANARE’s scientifi c program

and was involved in founding the subantarctic bases on Heard

and Macquarie Islands. In 1949, he was appointed director of

ANARE and of the Australian Antarctic Division, positions he

held until 1966 and during which he consolidated Australia’s

presence in Antarctica and explored extensive tracts of the

Australian Antarctic Territory.

which opened on 13 February 1954. In 1957, Law established

Davis Station on the extensive ice-free area of Princess Elizabeth

Land. He then negotiated the transfer of America’s Wilkes

Station to Australian administration. On 4 February 1959 this

became Australia’s third continental station; in 1969 it was

replaced by Casey Station. Law was crucial in establishing

Australia as a leader in Antarctic exploration and science, and as

one of the 12 original parties to the Antarctic Treaty, which came

into effect in 1961.

In his 19 years as an Antarctic explorer, Phillip Law took part in

28 expeditions. Under his direction, some 5,000 kilometres of

coastline were charted. Of all his achievements, Law considered

the fi rst landing at Larsemann Hills to be his greatest. In early

1958, and after days of negotiating ice-free peaks that rose

to 500 feet, the ANARE leader led the fi rst party to land at

Larsemann Hills. In his honour, the Law Base was established

at the site in 1986–87.

Phillip Law died in Melbourne at the age of 97.

This issue is one of a series focusing on different farming

industries in Australia.

The dairy industry is one of our major rural industries, ranking

behind only beef and wheat. While all states and territories

have dairy industries, most production occurs in the more

temperate south-east areas of the country, and includes

milk, yoghurts and a wide variety of cheese types. The most

common dairy cow breeds are the Holstein Friesian and the

Jersey.

The bright yellow sunfl ower is native to North America and

grown mainly in Queensland and New South Wales in Australia.

Sunfl ower seed is a source of oil used for cooking, salads,

paints and industrial lubricants. Non-oil varieties of sunfl ower

are used as birdseed or roasted and eaten as a snack.

The pineapple is a tropical fruit native to South America and in

Australia grows best in tropical Queensland and northern New

South Wales. Lutheran missionaries

planted the fi rst crops in Brisbane in

1729005 Blank cover


1838 and the commercial industry was established in 1924. In

1946 canning plants were built at Rockhampton and Cairns.

Pineapples are a good source of manganese and contain high

levels of vitamins C and B1.

Australia is consistently among the top 10 wine-growing

countries in the world. Shiraz is the most produced variety,

followed by chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon. The main

wine-producing states are South Australia, Victoria and

New South Wales, although Western Australia, Queensland,

Tasmania and ACT also have wine industries.

The humble apple tree originated in Central Asia and is one

of the most widely cultivated plants in the world. Of the

many apple varieties in existence, around 15 are produced

commercially in Australia, with Pink Lady, Granny Smith,

Gala and Sundowner being the four most common. Victoria

is Australia’s leader in apple production and the market

is primarily domestic, with the majority of fruit sold and

consumed fresh.

This stamp issue commemorates a century of compulsory

enrolment to vote in Australian federal elections. While

compulsory voting was fi rst advocated by Alfred Deakin

at the turn of the 20th century, voting was voluntary for

the fi rst nine elections. Compulsory enrolment for federal

elections was introduced in 1912. At a state level, compulsory

voting was introduced in Queensland in 1915, in Victoria

in 1926, in NSW and Tasmania in 1928, in WA in 1936 and

in SA in 1942.

Signifi cant impetus for compulsory voting at federal

elections appears to have come from a decline in voter

turnout from more than 71% in 1919 to less than 60% at

the 1922 election. In 1924 a private member’s bill to amend

the Electoral Act was introduced in the Senate and voting

became compulsory in federal elections. The impact was

immediate, with turnout at the 1925 election rising to

more than 91%. Voluntary enrolment and voting at federal

elections was introduced for Australian Aborigines in 1949

and in 1984 it became compulsory.

This stamp issue honours fi ve remarkable clinicians who have

contributed to making our health system one of the best in the

world.

Dr Jane (Jean) Stocks Greig (1872–1939) was a public

health specialist. In 1896, with her sister Janet, she founded

Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Hospital. She helped improve

the health and dental standards of Victorian school children

and her administrative positions included membership of the

secretariat of the Victorian Baby Health Centres Association

and the Council of Public Education.

Like Greig, paediatrician Dame Kate Campbell (1899–1986)

was a graduate of the medical school of the University of

Melbourne. A specialist in children’s diseases, Campbell proved

the link between retrolental fi broplasia (a type of blindness in

premature babies) and oxygen levels in humidicribs. She was

appointed to the Order of the British Empire in 1971.

The birth of the Kangaroo

and Map stamp

When Australia’s six colonies federated to form

the Commonwealth of Australia on January 1

1901, philatelists looked forward to the release

of a single series of Australian Commonwealth

stamps. It was not to be. Not even a temporary

issue of overprinted state stamps was arranged

(as had been initially proposed). For 12 years

after Federation, state stamps previously

released continued to be current, and for most

of this period the stamps remained valid for

postage only in the state of origin.

Various schemes were advanced to feature

Commonwealth designs on states’ stamps,

but none of these plans ever came to fruition.

Perhaps the chief reason was the rapid

succession of Postmasters-General. There were 11

occupants of the Postmaster-General’s portfolio

between 1901 and 1912. Invariably, a proposal

concerning new Commonwealth stamps put

forward by one Postmaster-General would be

abandoned by his successor.

The fi rst important step towards ending state

stamps came with the appointment of a board

“to consider and report on the best methods to

be adopted” for a future issue of Commonwealth

stamps. The fi ve-member Stamp Board

represented the Post Offi ce, stamp printing,

engraving, the fi ne arts and philately. The Board

met in the Melbourne General Post Offi ce for

two weeks during October 1907 producing a

report and key recommendations.

Only one printing establishment would be able

to undertake the production of a single series

of Commonwealth stamps, and the competing

claims of the state printers preoccupied the

Post Offi ce’s attention. It was decided that the

Stamp Printer in Adelaide employed by the Post

Offi ce, John Bradley Cooke, would transfer to

Melbourne to take over stamp production in the

Victorian Government Printing Offi ce. In March

1909, the new Stamp Printing Offi ce was set up

under Cooke’s control. When the decision was

taken to proceed with Commonwealth stamps,

the new Stamp Printing Offi ce in Melbourne

would carry out the work.

When Charles Frazer became Postmaster-

General, he was able to ensure that “something

emblematic of Australia” appeared on

Australia’s stamps. He rejected the design being

considered, which was the result of an earlier

public competition, and asked the Victorian

Artists’ Society to nominate a member artist

who could produce an alternative design. The

Society chose Blamire Young, a noted English

watercolourist living in Australia at the time.

In December 1911, Young submitted a series of

10 designs, all of which are believed to have

featured scenes enclosed by an outline map

of Australia.

None of the 10 designs survive today, but it is

recorded that one of these depicted a kangaroo

inside a map of Australia. The exact sequence of

events is unclear, but presumably Frazer chose

the kangaroo design as the basis for the new

stamp. The various Kangaroo and Map designs

exist as printed “essays” or samples and are

the work of Rudolph Steel, a private artist and

lithographer in Melbourne. The fi rst Kangaroo

and Map stamp was issued on 2 January 1913,

and within three months the full series of values

had been issued.

This stamp issue traces the design evolution of the Rising Sun

badge, also known as the General Service badge, worn by

Australian Army personnel. There is some uncertainty as to

the origin of the fi rst design, but the most accepted theory is

that it derives from a trophy of arms. It is believed the trophy

was designed by Major Joseph Maria Gordon of the South

Australian Permanent Artillery, who took it around the colony

during recruitment drives. Created around 1893, it comprised

seven cut-and-thrust swords alternating with six Martini Henri

bayonets, radiating from a brass crown, all mounted on a red

semi-circular board.

Some years later, Gordon presented the trophy to Major-

General Sir Edward Hutton, the British offi cer appointed

Commander-in-chief by the newly federated government of

Australia to coordinate its colonial forces into a single

Commonwealth force. Seeking a uniquely

identifi able badge, Hutton suggested a

design based on the trophy, representing

the coordination of Australia’s naval and infantry forces. The

fi rst badges were produced quickly for the battalions that

fought in South Africa in early 1902, the fi nal year of the Boer

War.

Since the badge was fi rst produced, its design has gone

through seven iterations, fi ve of which are shown in the stamp

issue: the fi rst, third, fi fth, sixth and seventh. The fi rst, used

during the Boer War, was replaced within months, most likely

due to the change of name from “Australia” to “Australian

Commonwealth Horse”. Approved in May 1904, the third

design was worn by personnel of Australian Imperial Forces

through both World Wars. Following Queen Elizabeth II’s

coronation (1953), the badge’s central motif was altered in

the fi fth iteration to show the St Edward’s Crown, used for her

coronation. The sixth design introduced the Federation Star,

sitting upon a heraldic wreath. The seventh and most recent

design returns the badge to near its third iteration. This change

coincided with the 75th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli.
